Although increasing in incidence and prevalence, neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) remain rare and complex diseases with heterogeneous biology and clinical behavior, requiring multidisciplinary team management. Knowledge of these diseases has significantly increased in recent decades, thanks to improvements in the diagnostic accuracy of cross-sectional imaging procedures; the evolution of nuclear medicine tecniques; and the development of promising therapeutic approaches that have been shown to positively impact disease clinical outcome and patients’ quality of life. The present Special Issue aims at investigating the “gray areas” that still remain in the clinical management of NETs, focusing on the unmet need that physicians dealing with these diseases may face during diagnostic work-up and therapeutic strategy setting up.
